Check out this incredible story in which Mark Patterson, while camping with his family in Clinton, British Columbia, wrestles a cougar off his 12-year-old daughter’s friend, Colton Reed. From the National Post:

_”All I could see was blood all over Colton’s head … I ran down and I kicked the cat in the head five times as hard as I could. . . . I jumped on him with one knee and my two hands around his neck, and I squeezed his neck as hard as I could and managed to yank him off about five seconds later. . . . .”

The cat stared at him, ears back and growling.

“I growled right back and I told him, ‘Come on,'” said Patterson._
